Not sure I like this side much better yet. I was scheduled to have an L5/S1 micro d on Tuesday. I ended up having an L4/L5 L5/S1 discectomy/decompression.
Am at home now. I am having less pain in my leg (numbness still there though) but besides incission pain still have pain in buttocks. Way to early to tell but am keeping fingers crossed. Right now, not feeling any less pain than pre surgery except for lower leg. I didn't get that immediate feeling some people get right away when you can tell it was successful.
Well over one hurdle, on to the recovery hurdles.
Hope everyone has a great day!
